  1. He’s 21 years old. It’s unreal how dominant he can be once he develops a consistent pass rush plan.
  2. Actually, it's because of an extremely good opportunity for advancement at work, in which I haven't had time to engage in football forum debates.
  3. I wonder if Raiders fans were whining about Khalil Mack when he only got 4 sacks his rookie year.
  4. You're missing the point of my post. You're completely entitled to your opinion on Rivera. But people are also entitled to their opinion on Haskins, as well as how much credence people are willing to give to these reports about his intangibles. Personally, I believe some of it is true, but I'm not buying into every rumor or anonymous report I hear, especially after the amount of positive stories we heard and saw this offseason as it relates to his work ethic. I think there is a large difference between "blowing off" that narrative and not buying into it all. I think the latter
  5. Which is my point about Haskins. Those of us who support him can still do so, even after all the negative reports, if we don't think he was given long enough to prove what he is as a player. This dude is also neither Jesus nor Hitler.
  6. Yes. The reports about his great work ethic all offseason were not. These new ones are. No. I haven't seen or heard anything from Rivera saying Haskins not working hard enough was the reason for his benching.
  7. I would have loved that. Maybe certain people would stop hiding behind the anonymous work ethic reports as their justification for the Haskins benching if Rivera was straight up about his feelings from the start.
  8. Ah, the old "gut" excuse. Never fails. That was part of the justification for the war in the early 2000s by our former president, if I recall correctly. At least he's not lying anymore and finally (begrudgingly) admitting his inconsistent messaging and decision-making.
  9. Cooley, Sheehan, Bullock, etc. have been killing Rivera for his confusing flip-flopping and in-game decisions. Are you willing to admit you've been wrong to defend him this season because they are down on him, and are citing examples as to why? I know the answer is no. It's the same with Haskins for people who still support him. People aren't going to completely give up on a QB they liked and still think can be good just because of negative reports about his immaturity and work ethic concerns (things that generally improve as a player ages). If people think he was given a raw
  10. Does Rivera have a quota for how many confusing lies he tells per press conference? I've never seen anything like it. “There is. To me, there is,” Rivera said when asked whether there was a timeline for evaluating his quarterbacks. “Again – and you brought up the point and it’s a very good point – there are guys in that locker room that are playing to win. Again, we have to make sure that everybody is playing well enough to win at that point. There is a cutoff point for me, there is.” https://www.foxnews.com/sports/washingtons-ron-rivera-cut-off-point-dwayn
  11. So I guess Dalton isn't so "hapless". And yes, very impressive giving up only 37 points.
  12. Is this the same Giants defense that let Dalton put up a 109 passer rating on them when Dak went down, leading them to multiple FGs to seal the win for the Cowboys? Dak vs Dalton in the Giants game:
  13. DVOA is schedule-adjusted, so that is irrelevant. What matters is where each defense ranks currently, as that gives us the most data to inform our opinion on the overall ability of a defense.
  14. Defensive DVOA is the best all-encompassing defensive metric out there. Baltimore is ranked 4th. Arizona is ranked 9th. LAR is ranked 13th. NYG is ranked 17th. Philly is ranked 19th. Cleveland is ranked 20th. So Haskins played two defenses ranked well ahead of the Giants and two that were ranked about the same.
